Pranav Dhanawade – The young boy who broke a 116 year old record by scoring 1009 in an innings
Pranav Dhanawade became the first player to score 1000 runs in a single innings. Pranav’s school declared the innings at 1465/3 with Parnav unbeaten at 1009 which he scored off 323 balls and at a strike-rate of 312.38. He played for a total of 395 minutes. Dhanawade broke the record held by the English schoolboy A. E. J. Collins for 116 years.
Pranav achieved this feat against the Arya Gurukul School in the HT Bhandari Cup inter-school tournament organized by the Mumbai Cricket Association. Pranav’s innings included a total of 59 sixes and 129 fours. All the figures are a world record in competitive cricket.
Pranav Dhanawade’s father Prashant is an auto rickshaw driver. His father’s dream is to see Pranav play for the Mumbai Under-16 team. Coaching and education expenses of Pranav Dhanawade will be borne by the Maharashtra government, as it has announced.
